School Reviews

5   4/5/2010
I am a student and I find this school to be a bit challenging, but filled with fun and academic programs. There are many extracuriccular activities and sports (flag football, volleyball, basketball, tennis, soccer, etc.). Our school's chess club, Science Club, Math Counts Club (and so on) have received MANY awards. All the teachers are kind and I can say likewise for many of the students. Many parents donate money and/or are involved with the school. BASIS Tucson Middle School is an outstanding school that I would recommend to anyone.
